Chipper Steel - X50CrMov8 - AISI A8Mod for knifemaking.
Chipper Steel - X50CrMov8 - A8 Mod is a versatile tool steel. Chipper Steel is a high alloy, chromium-containing, semi-stainless steel grade that will be appreciated for its remarkable combination of wear resistance and toughness. Chipper Steel has good dimensional stability during heat treatment, is easy to machine and grind, and can achieve high hardnesses. Usually used for the production of blades for heavy duty applications, Chipper Steel - X50CrMov8 - A8 Mod is ideally suited for the production of blades for hunting, bushcraft and outdoor knives.
How to harden and temper the Chipper Steel ?
You will find all the information and recommendations necessary for the heat treatment of this grade in its technical data sheet, which can be freely consulted and downloaded from our site. The process has been tested and recommended by Larrin Thomas, PhD in Metallurgy, who is well known to knifemakers for his remarkable analytical work, which can be consulted on his website Knife Steel Nerds. Thus, Chipper Steel is a semi-stainless steel grade that should be quenched at high temperature (1040°C), in air or oil.
